6 arrested in illegal shooting near Highway I-15 in Devore – VVNG.com

DEVORE HEIGHTS, California (VVNG.com) – The allegation of improperly parked vehicle ended with the arrest of six people and the seizure of several rifles.

That happened on Sunday, March 20, 2022, when a California Highway Patrol officer issued a statement in block 17700 Glen Helen Pkwy, next to I-15 Highway.

While the CHP officer was performing his duties, he heard a loud automatic fire near his location and asked for help from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. Fontana Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call for service and arrived within minutes, officials said.

According to a press release, “MPs located a parked vehicle with an inscription on the windshield and learned that a CHP officer had left the site for his own safety.”

Deputies stepped out of their marked units and carefully checked the immediate area near Interstate 15 and Glen Helen Parkway.

“Lawmakers at the scene also heard multiple high-powered automatic fire coming from an open field on the west side of the road, which was later discovered to have been illegally shot,” the statement said.

The deputies asked for help from the Sheriff’s Aviation, the Deputy Central Station, the Fountain Police Department and the US Forest Service.

The deputies formulated a tactical plan and, with the help of aviation, began to announce the PA, ordering all subjects to stop firing weapons, secure them and leave the area. As more occupied vehicles came out of the illegal shooting range, they were stopped by several police officers and detained while their vehicles were searched.

During an extensive detailed search of about 35 vehicles, with 53 subjects (including small children), more firearms and ammunition were found. Seven illegal assault rifles were found and taken as evidence. Six adult men were arrested, including a convicted criminal for possession of assault rifles.

The public is discouraged from using large private areas as shooting ranges.
